Promotions - Pack
The Pack promotion type enables retailers to assign a specific price to a group of items. When making a Pack promotion, you specify the items that are included in the promotion and the price when those items are listed. The Promotion is only triggered when all of the items are entered. When the items are placed on the transaction and the required quantity is met, the items are discounted. The items discounted will be limited to the quantity specified for the promotion. The defined price will be spread to the discount items. Quantities in excess will not be discounted unless the quantity required is reached again.
Sample Pack Promotions Activation Details
Create an Item Filter that includes the items that are part of the pack.
On the Reward Details screen, the Discount Type is set to Pack Price and cannot be changed. The Reward Type is set to Normal and cannot be changed. Enter the price that the customer must pay for the items included in the Pack Price promotion.
Pack Promotion Example: Buy 3 Shirts for $10
- On the Validation Rules screen, create an Item Filter and enter an Item Qty of 3.
- On the Reward Rules screen, the Discount Type is set to Pack Price and cannot be changed. Enter the desired price for the pack in the Discount Value field. In this example, the pack price is 10.00.
- Save the changes.
Spreading of Pack Price
Qty 2: No discounts are applied; Qty 3: Discount Pack Price is spread to 3 items, weighted by price; Qty 4: Discount Pack Price is spread to 3 items, weighted by price, 4th item is not discounted; Qty 6: If the "Apply Promotion more than once" setting is enabled, the Discount Pack Price is spread to first three items, then again for the second three items. Note: The pack price is only applied again if the Promotion Apply setting is more than one. If twice, 6 eligible items must be listed. If three times, 9 eligible items must be listed.
When spreading the pack price to the collection of items, the extended price value for that collection of items is retained. In the example above, assuming all items are priced the same (orig price), the result would be:
Qty 1 at 3.34; Qty 2 at 3.33. If the collection of items contained a $20 orig price item and 2 $10 orig price items, the result would be: Qty 1 - Orig Price 20 at 5.00; Qty 2 - Orig Price 10 at 2.50
